Preah Vihear and Koh Ker

I am still in the amazing country called Cambodia, but I have only one day left to get to know it better. Never mind, I hope to stay in touch.

Am publishing one more photo album.

It’s about my tour (when I was still in Siem Reap) to Preah Vihear and Koh Ker on 27 December. Preah Vihear (11th-12th centuries AD) is a Hindu temple built during the six-century existence of the Khmer empire. In 1962, after a long dispute between Thailand and Cambodia over ownership, the International Court of Justice in The Hague awarded it to Cambodia. There are Cambodian military guards there. Some call it the mother of all the temples! Koh Ker is an archaeological site, which includes an impressive pyramid. It is also located to the north of Siem Reap. Koh Ker was an important city of the Khmer Empire and even its capital in 928-944 AD. These are incredible places that I visited with my young Khmer friends, who were also my tour guide and driver.

I hope the New Year has started well for you all!
